Existing area codes or phone numbers will not have to be updated. However, all calls within your area code must be made using your area code + telephone number if an overlay has occurred. You will receive a recording instructing you to hang up and dial again if you do not follow this new dialing procedure.
A unique area code is a fantastic set of rules for communication. Most area codes consist of letters and numbers that are assigned randomly and have a specific significance.
No need to put in codes when you call from the same area or region.
You can use the prefix zero (0) before the phone numbers of international calls. When you make a domestic long distance call, you must include the area code of the destination. For example, when you are calling a friend in another city, you should dial 02-XXX-BBBB.
To make a call from outside of the country, more numbers must be added. You need two zeros (00) as the prefix for international call, the numbers 63 as the country code of Philippines, and the area codes of your recipient. Unlike local calls, however, it isn’t necessary to add the prefix zero before area code 32.
For example, if I am calling someone in Cebu province from outside the Philippines, You need to dial 0063-32-XXX-BBBB. If you call from a Cell Phone, You need to Dial +63-32-XXX-BBBB
